Kate Middleton's maternity wear just keeps getting better and better!

During day two of her royal tour of Sweden and Norway with Prince William on Wednesday, the Duchess of Cambridge seemingly took a style cue from her husband's late mother, Princess Diana.

The brunette beauty wore a red-and-white houndstooth coat, custom-made by Catherine Walker. Middleton accessorized the bold number with sheer burgundy tights, matching heels and a deep red Chanel handbag.

The outfit looks very similar to an ensemble Princess Diana wore to an event at Sandringham in December 1990. Just like Middleton, the late royal styled her Moschino coat with sheer tights and red heels, while also donning an oversized hat and black-and-white houndstooth skirt.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who are expecting their third child together, were accompanied by Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel as they made their way to the Karolinska Institute on Wednesday. According to a tweet from Kensington Palace, the royals learned more about Sweden's pioneering work in the field of mental health and children's well-being, and how children and young teenagers are supported through the Swedish education system.

She and her husband later visited Matteusskolan, a school in the heart of the city centre, where the YAM programme operates. Inside, Prince William gave a speech to students, teachers and guests about the importance of young people having conversations about mental health challenges.


The itinerary for day two was much more serious than what was planned for their first 24 hours in Sweden. The lovebirds kicked off their four-day tour by visiting an outdoor skating rink in Stockholm, sharing lots of laughs while challenging each other to a game of ice hockey.
